We have been made aware of some fraudulent recruitment scams being conducted by individuals or organisations purporting to be from Al Tamimi & Company in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. This type of fraud tends to occur through online services including bogus websites, social media accounts, online job boards or through unsolicited emails. The aim of the fraud is to obtain personal information or money claiming to cover costs (flights, visa and relocation). Company names and logos are used to try to convey authenticity.
If you receive a communication purporting to be from Al Tamimi & Company and you are in any doubt about whether or not it is genuine, please email: email@example.com. We recommend that you do not respond to such unsolicited offers of employment. If you believe you are the victim of any fraudulent activity, we advise you to contact your appropriate authorities. Genuine emails from Al Tamimi & Company only use the domain of “@tamimi.com”.
